Just Do It: Women Superintendents Speak to Aspiring Women
Katz, Susan J.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Francisco, CA, 2006)
A mixed method study using surveys and in-depth interviews was conducted with women school superintendents in four Midwestern states during the 1999-2000 school year to understand how they perceive their leadership skills, their uses of power in their positions, and how they generally talk about the job. Results of how the women perceived their leadership practices (Katz, 2004) and uses of power (Katz, in press) have been reported elsewhere. The purpose of this paper is to reveal analysis of unexplored data from the interviews of nine women superintendents who gave rich descriptions of the various aspects of their work lives particularly in the context of offering up advice to those women aspiring to the superintendency.
